Traditional Navajo Sandpainting
Set of Three
Creating beautiful dry paintings begin with the hand application of colored sands and powdered pigments in symetrical patterns. Traditionally they are designed on the ground of a hogan or on a cloth or buckskin.
Spiritual in nature, they are used in healing ceremonies. Once the ceremony has finished, the painting is destroyed.
The figures depicted are Holy People or Yeibicheii.
